A First-Hand Account From Emerald's CEO - Nicole Jardin
Our P6 loader 2.0 has had enhancements added over the last 6 months generated primarily from the need for fast and effective solutions during a P6 rollout. Over the summer we worked with a client in Southern California, helping them with process improvements for Primavera P6 8.2.
We helped improve their EPS and their OBS to enhance security and developed a more formal security model for the whole IT organization, crossing global and project level security settings and license controls. To do this manually in the development environment and then re-do it manually in the production environment would have taken in the range of 5-10 working days at a minimum. With the loading and extracting functionality of the P6 Loader, we literally were able to shrink this iterative effort down by a minimum of 80%, significantly reducing the amount of time charged to the client.
With the P6 Loader we were able to attend a morning meeting and make the client requested changes by lunchtime, enabling them to review the changes by the afternoon meeting. The amount of work we could accomplish in one day was incredible. We were able to efficiently work through different coding structures, clean up resource dictionaries and rearrange the team members departments and role teams, project settings standardization and WBS structures. As a result, we helped the client team keep momentum on the project because we were able to translate their ideas into reality almost instantaneously.
Another advantage we found was the small amount of time it took to move changes from development to production. We conducted user training on Thursday afternoon and by the time the team made it back to their offices, the necessary changes were in the production environment ready for them. No loss of the knowledge transfer.
With the new release of the P6 Loader the flexibility and speed of delivery we were able to achieve for this Cancer Hospital in their P6 revamp has revolutionized the way Emerald approaches a P6 rollout. It has even changed the way we approach our managed support and hosted clients. From this point on we do not go to any client without it.
